hit small towns in buckeye battleground, ohio. and in all of them, went after mitt romney for a tv ad here that falsely suggests local jeep jobs are headed to china, which the company denies. >> we don't want suddenly a bunch of ads saying stuff that's not true. you don't scare hard-working americans just to scare up some votes. >> reporter: the president's path from now until election day explains how he sees his path to election. ohio to wisconsin, to iowa, to virginia. new hampshire to florida to ohio to colorado. wisconsin to ohio to iowa. you'll notice that's three ohios. >> hello, ohio. >> reporter: if he wins here, iowa and wisconsin, it's game over. but the polls are increasingly tight. and 55% of the public still thinks the nation is on the wrong track. >> stand tall, mr. president. god is with you. we are with you. >> reporter: he can use that help. the president's doing what he can to rev up his strongest supporters from 2008, with similar themes. >> over the last four years, the status quo in washington, they fought us every step of the way. what they're counting on now, i
with the federal government is what he said. today romney held a storm relief event in dayton, ohio, at the same site he planned to hold a campaign rally. the instinct to help people is always welcome. the red cross will be the first to say canned goods are not useful in a situation like this one. >> a lot of goods here. i know there's more coming in. we'll box these things up and put them on some trucks and we're going to send them into, i think new jersey is a site that can distribute these to people who need them. but also if you can write a check to american red cross, that's welcome as well. >> romney then loaded some of the goods on a truck along with rob portman of ohio. questions about fema dogged the candidate. >> governor, are you going to eliminate fema? >> let's turn to sam stein and also joan walsh. joan, let's go to you first. this is where the bs meets the reality when it comes to mitt romney and what he really wants to do with fema. this puts the candidate in a tight spot, doesn't it? >> well, yes, of course, it does, ed. this moment really reminds me of that moment in 2008 when
your supporters to the mols you don't win. you have been in ohio working alongside the romney get out to vote effort. how is it going? >> we've been about 25 different states over the past year. i will say, bonnie, i haven't seen the conservative base whether you call that tea party, whether you call it regular, more energized than i've seen in this election cycle. that certainly been true in ohio. on friday of this week there were over 20% people who were showing up for romney event, my understanding was the president's event that morning in ohio drew about 3,000. that is a huge difference. ground game comes out of those things, those people come to rallies, they go out do door knocking, phone banks. my understanding of fks on the ground in ohio is republicans have had a larger turn out, get out to vote effort there than they have ever had. >> you know why? first of all, romney is at wit's end, he's going in to those counties where there are large numbers of republicans to try to make sure they come out because he can't get the other counties. he can't do that. that's why he's also g
's welcome as well. >> romney then loaded some of the goods on a truck along with rob portman of ohio. questions about fema dogged the candidate. >> governor, are you going to eliminate fema? >> let's turn to sam stein and also joan walsh. joan, let's go to you first. this is where the bs meets the reality when it comes to mitt romney and what he really wants to do with fema. this puts the candidate in a tight spot, doesn't it? >> well, yes, of course, it does, ed. this moment really reminds me of that moment in 2008 when john mccain had his crazy reaction to the economic crash and wanted to suspend his campaign and go back to washington and looked like he doesn't understand what was at stake. mitt romney looked ridiculous at that rally today. he was talking about cleaning up a football field of rubbish. and i think it's civilly when you can't play politics. right now, we're having a debate over the future of our society. and things like this disaster relief are really quite pertinent. so it's not that he can't campaign, but go out there and take questions about what you want to do wi
feet. >> dana: mitt romney attended a storm release event in ohio. listen to him. >> we have heavy hearts as you know, with the suffering going on and major part of our country. a lot of people hurting this morning. they were hurting last night. the storm goes on. i have had a chance to speak with some of the governors and the effected areas and they have talked about a lot of people having hard times. i appreciate the fact that people here in dayton got up this morning, some went to the grocery store, i see and purchased things that knows families will need. and -- things that these families will need. i appreciate your generosity. >> dana: times like these, people set politics aside. that's a smart thing, because i'm not running the new york marathon this weekend but i know people who train, they taper off in their running toward the end so they can be rested up and ready to go. i think in some ways america needed to taper off from the negative attacks that both candidates were doing toward one another. in the storm, right to set it aside. >> kimberly: this has been a serious rea
. the biggest lie of all is this lie in the last couple of days, mitt romney is trying to sell the people of ohio -- it doesn't look like they're buying it. the latest poll shows president obama up five still in ohio. but we know what's going on, right? no doubt about it. president obama is winning ohio. largely because he saved the auto industry and so many -- tens of thousands of jobs in ohio depend on the auto industry. so many families from the auxiliary businesses. in fact, the unemployment rate in ohio is lower than it is nationwide because the auto industry is back. thanks to president obama. g.m. is back making better cars than ever before. chrysler reported an 80% increase in their number in the third quarter of this year. it's all due to the auto bailout. it is working and mitt romney, we remember, opposed it. he wrote that famous op-ed for "the new york times". headline... let detroit fail. where he said don't do anything to help them out. let them go belly up. so, of course, romney campaign realizes panic
, romney heads to three states. he will be in the midwest in wisconsin and ohio. on friday night, ryan, romney, and their wifs kick off the final stretch in westchester, ohio, where they are joined by 100 governors, senators, and mayors. on friday romney travels to new hampshire and colorado. sunday is still up in the air. on the trail in florida, romney began laying out his arguments, a shorter message than last week. >> to get us on track to a balanced budget, that's going to take some real work. to get that done it going to require something in washington that's spoken about but not done and it's something i have to do. i've got to be able to reach across the aisle and get good republicans and democrats to work together. >> meanwhile, we've got new nbc news marist polls and they all show a tightening race. the president leads in the three that released today. in iowa, president obama maintains a lead. six-point lead over mitt romney. that is down from eight two weeks ago. in wisconsin, romney has cut the president's lead in half from the last time we were there. he trails by three p
university. and this evening, mitt romney and paul ryan led by their wives in west chester, ohio. former republican presidential candidate senator john mccain and, believes the rise will have -- condoleeza rice will be live. in ohio, 1.3 million have voted. 30% have been democrats, republicans 24%. ohio is one of the battleground states that we have been looking at in washington journal last week or so. here is a look at this morning's program focusing on ohio. >> we are joined by a political reporter, here are the numbers of ohio. a state with 18 crucial electoral votes, the unemployment rate of 7%, a state that president obama won by a little more than four points in 2008. take us beyond the numbers and explain why ohio is described as the ultimate battleground state. >> ohio doesn't need anymore spotlights. the candidates themselves and their running mates have been in ohio about 80 times by the time this weekend is over. that is a lot of activity. ohio is the crucial bellwether. it has been wrong twice in the last 110 or 112 years in terms of predicting the president. we have a great
. obama has a 73.6% chance of winning. it's hard to imagine a romney victory without winning ohio. okay. everybody is in ohio. it's such a bizarre undertaking to go through the map and everyone now has these nice interactive things. is that your sense of the race? my sense of the race is that it's very hard to see it not coming down to ohio if we are sitting down on election night figuring out what the call is going to be made, it looks like ohio is going to determine it. you have been around the country. i'm just curious, what sort of the mood has been in different swing districts that you have been in? you are active in all parts of the country. >> we have been active in a number of battleground states. i have most recently been to ohio and new hampshire. the mood is different depending on the day and where you go. one of the things i did not find to be true is mitt the momentum. i think what we saw in the aftermath of the first debate was romney folks feeling like it was all of a sudden okay to be proud to be out as romney voter. >> true. >> i did not see that before that. i think th
rudy giuliani hitting the campaign trail for governor romney in ohio today. he joins us from cincinnati. nice to see you, mr. mayor. >> nice to see you, greta, how are you? >> very well. before we get to your statements just a second ago and looks like you are not taking any prisoners on that. you were at a rally tonight for the governor. i'm curious who else was there and how many people. did you you get a look at the crowd? >> 30 to 35,000. there for three, three and a half hours in kind of cold weather. didn't bother them at all. just about every republican you can think of was here. john mccain. john kasich the governor, senator portman, senator graham. republicans from all over the country. they are all going to leave here and fan out over the country in support of mitt romney. i will be in wisconsin tomorrow. florida the next day. maybe pennsylvania. they are going to probably decide that as we move along. but the idea was all of the supporters here tonight supporting mitt romney and paul ryan and starting tomorrow morning they will all be in the different parts of the country pro
is really key to his midwest firewall. if mitt romney doesn't win ohio, it is very unlikely that he will hold on to the presidency. according to our latest nbc news "wall street journal" marist poll, president obama has an honest lead here in ohio. let's take a look at the latest numbers. according to our poll, president obama has a six-point lead in the buckeye state, which is unchanged from last month. he's gotten high marks after hurricane sandy with seven in ten voters approving of his handling of the storm and he has a slight edge when it comes to handling the economy. 48% say mr. obama would do a better job compared to 46% who side with romney. on friday, mr. obama made a three-stop blitz here in ohio, staking his closing argument on the auto bailout, which is widely popular here. and which republicans oppose. he also slammed romney for claiming that jeep is shipping jobs to china. it's a claim the romney campaign defends that has been widely discredited. take a listen to what president obama had to say. >> the car companies themselves have told governor romney to knock it off
in ohio we said not to boo but encouraged voters to vote. saying vote is tfor revenge. romney said vote for love of your country. to give you a sense of where this campaign stands as they look forward, the former governor of utah is traveling one of the first times with the campaign today. he's in charge of what's called the romney readiness pre-transition process as they prepare for a potential administration in his words. like building a ship that you hope will set sail. that's the latest from here in dubuque. back to you. >> in about 30 minutes we'll hear from paul ryan, campaigning for mitt romney in battleground virginia my home state. must be slightly awkward for him today given politico's exclusive story saying ryan wasn't romney ace first choice for vp, it was chris christie. so jonathan what do you make of these reports, your out let there. politico saying romney was planning on going with christie and after his trip to israeling changed his mind? >> there was a significant intrigue going on even as these candidates are rumbling, stumbling and bumbling around the country in the
, governor romney had some expected rallies that are planned for virginia in ohio there may be a whole lot of snow to content with while folks on the east coast are dealing with wind and rain. let's get a better view of this big storm now kind of threatening a good portion of the east coast. our chad myers with me now, so chad, we're talking about these pre-emptive declarations of states of emergency. >> sure. >> and in large part, to really send a serious message to people that you don't need to be complacent, yes it's a category 1, but really anything can happen with this storm. >> it also gives the authorities, the police and the fire some specific extra ability to move people if they need to. like our where our sandra endo is-seaside beach. all 35 milislands, you have got be out of the island. we saw some of the our live shots, the center of this storm is still some 300 miles from kill devil hills. it's 500 miles from indianapolis. 350 miles from the center and out, you're going to have 350 miles south as the storm drives itself into long island, into new jersey or possibly down toward

campaign gamut backfired. >> but mitt romney is still kpetive in ohio. >> this is a mainstream republican state. there is a reason no republicans won the white house not winning ohio. there is a deep republican tradition in this state. the fact that it's an obama fire wall is what is remarkable. this is a state that mitt romney could do well. he should do well. running the obama's campaign core strategy appealing to middle class voters, working class whites in this state makes a big difference when it comes to ground game and that critical early voting. mitt romney has had a real problem connecting to those folks. >> who is he leading with in ohio? >> president obama is leading with women. he's leading with centrist business 0 points. losing independents by two points. losing white men by a considerable margin. leading with folks who make undered 50 e$50,000 a year. so the national themes are evident here in ohio. >> when you say independents and centrists, you're describing them as two separate things. a lot of viewers think independents means centrists. >> in the past, they have. one of
. governor romney knows that only too well that no republican has won the white house without winning ohio and the race right now in ohio is close to a dead heat. let's look at the two latest polls. first, our own cnn/orc poll of likely voters shows president obama with a three point lead. now that is inside the statistical margin of error. so that's about as close as it can get. and nbc "wall street journal" poll gives the president a six point lead in ohio. a little better for obama. still very close. now obama may be the top prize for the candidates right now l are other important battleground states. we'll take through over the course of the next hour in a way that only cnn can. john avalon and i traveled more than 1800 miles on cnn's battleground bus tour as the race for the white house reaches its conclusion. no mat wrer i ter where i go, t economy is the most important issue in this election. i've been traveling with john avalon. he joins me now as does my good friend christine romans. she joins me from washington. jim acosta from did he back to you, iowa, where mitt romney just lan
for the president, but mitt romney held his disaster relief event in ohio yesterday. the question that dogged him that he would not answer was about fema. take a listen. >> governor, what should fema's role be? governor, would you eliminate fema if you were president? >> well, it's either 11 or 14 times, depending on whose count you believe. the campaign released a statement saying that romney would not abolish fema but, quote, governor romney believes that states should be in charge of emergency management in responding to storms and other natural disasters in their jurisdiction. that's from his spokesman, ryan williams. is this a problem for him, susan? >> well, i think it becomes an issue for him because of what he said in that primary debate that john king moderated where he was asked specifically about fema. he said anything that the federal government does that can be transferred to the states are better yet to the private sector. that's the right direction. so it leaves open the question of exactly what role he sees for fema. fema has been a controversial agency such as their delivery of s

romney barnstorming the state of ohio today, a swing state, with 18 electoral votes that could be the key to victory tesday. four days before we choose who ll lead the nation for the next four years, president obama making an outrageous claims about his record in the face of a rise in the unemployment rate today, which had just under 8%, is higher than when the president took office. >> our idea were tried and testedand they worked. their ideas were also tried, and they did no work done so well. lou: 23 milli americans to remain out of work might disagree. the national debt has risen by more than $5 trillion. the nation'seconomy, it is all but stagnant. this has governor romney running l as the candidate of change. >> accomplishing change is not just something i talked about. it is sething actually done, and we need to hve someone in the white house who cannot just talk about it, but do it. lo the most recent poll of ohio mirrors those tight national polls. rasmussen reports showing governor romney tied with president obama at 49%. nationally the dead heat can be seenacross a white canvas
that. he's competitive in ohio. this is a dead heat. statistically a dead heat between romney and obama. very puzzling to hear how this is going over here. >> and just to add to that, the swing voters we're talking to here, there is a sense that this issue resonated. the front pages, the local newspaper here is about romney on the auto industry. >> people are mad. >> and it is registering as an unforced error. people take it very personally here, their jobs, their local economy is connected to the auto bailout and stimulus package according to the mayor here. >> yeah. and, john, listen, the president has a tough sell. it may be an easier sell for mitt romney and the reason i say that is because when everyone is running for president, they can say i'm going to do this. you heard mayor romney saying i'm going to open up the keystone pipeline, this and this and this and this. it is tougher for the president to say i'm going to do more of what we have been doing so the economy at least grows a little bit. so do you think, john, or -- either one of you guys, do you think voters get that part
. >>> mitt romney is about to head to ohio himself. he's in wisconsin where he's giving what aids call his closing arguments. he will hold hallies in columbus and cincinnati this afternoon. he calls the october jobs report a sad reminder the economy is at a standstill. he says as president, he would make changes that lead to a real economic recovery. >>> turning to the weather, a cold, gray start to the day. we have blue sky out there now. puffy white clouds. >> yes, we do. storm team 4 meteorologist tom kierein with the forecast. >> hey, tom. >> what a welcome sightseeing that blue sky and sunshine. this may be the sunniest day of the week so far. we have been socked in with clouds and we had that cold sprinkle activity. it looks like it's beginning to wind down. we have a few passing sprinkles, speckles of green. a lot of activity is beginning to end. as we look to the west, there's a lot of sunshine. it is going to continue. a little bit of dry air pushing in over much of the region. the dark blue is still in the 30s. it's where the heavy snow fell in western maryland, south central and
first victory in january, 2008. if you look at the map for romney as well, a lot in ohio as well. other states there, one in particular is pennsylvania. he will be there spending one day over the weekend and so will his running mate, paul ryan. are they trying to put pennsylvania in play, a move of strength or desperation. they have different answers on that one. >> we are going dig deeper into that later. gloves are off on the campaign trail. let's take a listen. >> in the closing weeks of the campaign, romney is using his talents as a salesman to dress up the very same policies that failed our country so badly. the same policies we have been cleaning up after these past four years and offering them up as change. >> a lot of people are hurting. they don't want to see another four years like the last four. do you want to see four more years with 23 americans struggling for good jobs? >> no! >> he took a break because of superstorm sandy, but now there's a lot of rhetoric. >> here is one reason why. take a look at this. the race is extremely tight right now. here is the national cnn poll
. >> the president finishing strong in ohio as mitt romney tries to scare voters in wisconsin. >> and unless we change course, we may well be looking at another recession. >> strong numbers out today prove president obama has turned this country around and the republicans can't stand it. richard wolf and david k. johnston are here with analysis. >>> plus, bob with the latest numbers that look even better for the president. >>> turner on ohio's latest voting she in nanigans. >> this is freedom. >> we'll break down the down ballot republican clapts. >> the female bodies has ways to try and shut the whole thing down. >> good to have you with us tonight. this is the report we've all been waiting for. the exienl jobs report before the election is now out and it is all good news for the obama supporters. the united states added 171,000 jobs last month. expectations were around 125,000 new jobs. the unemployment rate is up .1% of a point to 7.9%. the reason behind the slight uptick is more americans joined the work force. this of course is good news. it makes october 184,000 jobs were added to the pri
's here in ohio. governor romney will be here tontd. they expect some 35,000 republicans at his rally. in this part of the state i'm in cincinnati tonight. when you look deep in our poll you see this one will be fought out through the last poll closing on election night. look at these two candidates among independents. governor romney with a slight edge 48% to 46%. again, that's a statistical tie well within the margin of error. the auto bailout is one of the things the president thinks will help him here in ohio. you heard him mention that in this speech. look at this in the industrial northern part of the state, across northern ohio where you have many auto-related direct factory plants, the president leads 52% to 45%. some evidence there especially among white blue collar workers the president is doing better than he might have done otherwise without the auto bailout. what was fascinating four years ago when you visited where i am, you knew at this time the race was over because the president then-senator obama was doing so well here. look at our poll numbers here from cincinnati a
president obama. 46% of ohio's likely voters support mitt romney. it is that close. and, of course, in ohio, every single vote is valuable. ballots are guarded and tracked with ferocious precision. but i got a behind the scenes up close look in one county to see how the ballots are actually counted. here it is. in person -- >> name, two forms of i.d., signature, looks good. >> reporter: or by mail, all ballots in hamilton county, ohio, end up here, election headquarters. >> so this is when the absentee ballots come back from the post office. we have the clerks who scan them back in and check them for making sure they're valid. >> reporter: processed by an army of staff, volunteers, and machines. norman jr.'s turn now. a brand-new machine named after the character in the movie psycho, because of this noise. norman scans, photographs, and separates ballots into precincts. >> we start with mail buckets and just toss them all in. >> reporter: are you happy to have this machine? >> with this many ballots, yes. >> reporter: now downstairs to the inspectors. this is it? >> this is it. this is wher
, mitt romney tried to turn an ohio campaign rally into a relief rally. collecting donations for storm victims with a viewing of his campaign video before hand and a few remarks. >> a lot of people hurting this morning. they were hurting last night and the storm goes on. i have had the chance to speak with some of the governors in the affected areas and they've talked about a lot of people having a hard time. you can't always solve all the problems yourself, but you can make the difference in the life of one or two people as a result of one or two people taking an effort. >> romney declared he would send the boxes of rice krispies and canned goods in a truck to new jersey. asked if romney would be visiting the state himself, new jersey governor chris christie dismissed the idea with a large dose of disdain. >> is there any possibility that governor romney may go to new jersey to tour some of the damage with you? >> i have no idea nor am i the least bit concerned or interested. i have got a job to do here in new jersey that's much bigger than presidential politics and i could care less
are contorsoinists. >> governor romney is down by five points in ohio, according to the latest polls. for mr. romney, desperate times call for desperate measures and it doesn't matter how much the truth suffers. joining me now is pulitzer prize connie schultz. she writes today, why romly will lose ohio. hint, hint. and dana milbank, columnist for "the washington post." he's writing that romney goes off road with the truth. thanks for being here tonight. connie, let me start with you. you were born and raised in ohio with ties to the auto industry. >> yes. >> how are ohioans responding to this false attack by romney and ryan? >> that's what is interesting to me. i come from these people. i come from utility workers and auto plant workers and steel workers. i think romney thinks that the people that i come from are stupid. but i've been traveling all over the state. i was in three different towns today and i've been at a lot of packed halls with auto workers and people who supply the auto industry. you're talking about 800,000 jobs in auto-related jobs in ohio, which means you're talking about more th
